LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner Review
It looks like a glass (or should we say bottle) of milk from a distance, but it is actually skincare! We are certain that you are no stranger to LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner, after all, this toner has taken the crown as one of the best Korean facial toners for dry, sensitive skin with its unique cream-in-toner formula that delivers deep and long lasting moisture into the skin. Our BONIIK team will never stop being amazed by the results, here’s why.
Made with white tea extract that is rich in skin-loving antioxidants and vitamins, LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner contains Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which prevents premature aging caused by free radical damage, tightens sagging skin and fights dull complexion to bring out a radiant complexion. In addition, it is enriched with meadowfoam seed oil which helps create a moisture barrier on the skin to keep it soft and supple by sealing in adequate hydration. Therefore, the combination of these ingredients in the toner keeps it from being too dry or too oily.
Like we mentioned before, this toner has an opaque, milky texture that looks just like a glass of milk! As it turns out, this toner contains a whole bottle of cream that has been dissolved to keep the skin well hydrated, healthy and dewy without greasiness thanks to LANEIGE patented Cream Blending Technology. Our BONIIK team was impressed and surprised by how this toner can still have such a smooth and watery texture despite it being moisturised. Honestly, we were expecting something viscous and rich at first!
On top of that, this laneige cream skin toner absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving behind a soft layer of moisture and glow which is perfect to use before any makeup application to keep it long lasting and fresh throughout the day. Because of its deeply moisturising texture, our team found laneige cream skin refiner Australia to be excellent in alleviating flakiness, rough patches and tightness after cleansing for those with dry skin.
Moisturising toners often come with a bad reputation of being comedogenic or clogging pores, especially for those with oily skin. Is laneige cream skin refiner non comedogenic? It sure is! Despite its deeply moisturising texture, laneige cream skin refiner uses mild, safe and gentle ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be safe and effective for all skin types.
